One of my bird pieces, 'Bohemian Waxwing," has been accepted into the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Exhibit, Birds in Stitches!

This piece was inspired by a photograph of this beautiful bird. It was hand appliqued, bird, branches and berries, hand embroidered, machine "thread painted" and machine quilted.

All in all it is a successful piece and I am quite proud of it.

Here's the shows announcement!


  1. Congratulations...this is a fabulous piece! How exciting that it was juried into the show.

  2. Congratulations from ME as well. I love it!

  3. Congrats!! love this piece - I can see you in it!! We have a show here that is only birds in works of art and there was only one fiber piece in it - which was NEARLY as good as this!! Great job!
